Death by Chocolate

This is one of those really rich desserts that lives up to its title. I don't normally use cake mixes, but this was a last minute request by a friend. The recipe is easy to make and is definitely a crowd pleaser. If you don't like using cool whip, you can substitute whipped cream. Feel free to add more toffee if you like it, which is what I did. You can make this in a trifle dish or a smaller punch bowl.

Yogurt with Cucumber

This recipe makes a great side dish to any spicy Indian, Middle Eastern, or Mediterranean meal. I make variations of this with different herbs. Sometimes I use dill or chives and when I am running low on ingredients, I will omit the herbs completely. This is very easy to make and I always make a big portion since I can eat spoonfuls of it. I generally make this with regular plain yogurt as opposed to Greek yogurt. To thicken it, I let it sit in a colander lined with 2 sheets of paper towels. After about 30 minutes to 1 hour the consistency is very similar to Greek yogurt.
